Waiting on summer

Now most of the preparations our 2014 cruise season are complete,  all we have to do is wait for summer.

I've watched Boudicca, Marco Polo, Discovery, Saga Sapphire and Oriana on the webcams as they sail their Northern Lights cruises.   It really feels as though we've missed the start of the year but it has allowed us to do other, essential things.

Welcome to our 2014 cruises

We've had a very slow start to the 2014 season.    Preparations are now going well.
  • Pay Travel Insurance ü
  • Provisionally book transit hotels ü
  • Book trains ü (some)
  • Check documents ü
  • Arrange house-sitters ü

There is one particular summer date when it is proving impossible to book an affordable Edinburgh hotel so we continue our research.
